Anthracnose insensitivity to strobilurin fungicides confirmed

Anthracnose insensitivity to the strobilurin (Group 11) foliar fungicide group shouldn’t come as a surprise. This group is rated as high risk for developing insensitivity, and the first confirmed report of Group 11 insensitivity occurred in 2003 with Ascochyta rabiei on chickpea. In a 2019 survey conducted by AAFC’s Michelle Hubbard, all 33 samples in which A. rabiei was detected had Group 11-insensitive A. rabiei. » Learn more

Pea aphid and aphid-transmitted viruses in Saskatchewan pulse crops

Pea aphids in pulse crops not only cause direct damage from feeding, but also cause indirect damage through transmission of viruses, such as Pea Seed-borne Mosaic Virus (PSbMV). The virus can be tricky to identify and appears infrequently, but the lab run by University of Saskatchewan assistant professor and entomologist Sean Prager has developed the mechanisms and expertise necessary to test for it. » Learn more

It’s Time To Make a Nitrogen Plan

In the world of agriculture, success is never a guarantee. It’s why you have to take the right steps to set yourself up to optimize your nitrogen investment. Add a nitrification inhibitor like CENTURO® nitrogen stabilizer to your plan and to your spring-applied anhydrous to slow the conversion of ammonium and minimize nitrogen leaching beyond the root zone. CENTURO is noncorrosive to the metals used in anhydrous ammonia equipment, and if you apply it at the right time, you can minimize your loss while boosting your yield potential. Keep reading to get other helpful tips about guarding your nitrogen investment.
